4:14 pm
not yet citizens and not able to vote in school board elections many of the students are citizens who's needs may not be met giving a voice to all parents is good for the kids it expands the opportunity to all communities i want to thank the majority of san francisco board of supervisors but also board of education matt haney and shamann walton and with rosen and sandra fewer this measure a positive step for shared values as san franciscans of democracy and inclusion of everyone and civic participation and fairness and providing an opportunity for all parents to have a voice in who gets the sites on the board of education in our city and shape
4:15 pm
the quality and equal opportunities of our schools i wanted to thank my staffing victor and angela and others from assemblyman david chiu's office but our broad coalition to credit for the growth of that shared values of 100 percent parental involvement in the schools especially psychologically man advocates and parents voices and faith in action and many youth commissioners and youth organizations for building our broad coalition i want to thank our co-sponsors supervisor campos, supervisor cowen, supervisor wiener and supervisor kim for supporting this effort i think that san francisco like other cities can make history by expanding the right to vote to parents in our public school and
4:16 pm
wanted to say quickly to as this coalition grows we want to doing everything we can to include the parents stories and how having 100 percent be parental involvement in the schools go makes our schools and our whole school system better for everyone i thank the colleagues and put this on the ballot in november and make history. >> thank you supervisor mar and supervisor wiener. >> i want to say thank supervisor mar in bringing forgot this charter amendment with the support of assembly member chiu i hope the third time is a charm i was proud to promote that in previous occasions and it came close but failed i hope the voters adopt
4:17 pm
this we know that parents are successful in big deal academy with the school and school community and means being engaged politically in hoping to formulate the policies and direction of the public school system it makes a lot of sense that participants that have kids in the public schools should be able to vote for in school board elections regardless of where they are citizens so i'm supportive of this measure and hope that we send it out to the voters today. >> thank you supervisor cowen. >> thank you very much supervisor president london breed i wanted to take a moment to pubically acknowledge the leadership of supervisor mar so for being resilience and not giving up on this incredibly
4:18 pm
important ballot initiative i believe that this is a democracy it is our duty to widening the tents in bringing people to the table and not exclusively people we should put forward and making sure the voters know where this board stands. >> thank you supervisor cowen supervisor kim. >> i also want to thank supervisor mar for his leadership on this measure i did campaign for this also in 2004 about many of you and have long believed that non-citizens and guardian so participate in the board of education elections many parents have spent years over decades objecting three quarters citizenship and during that period of time they are watched their children graduate from elementary school and middle school and high school and by the time they have a say
4:19 pm
in board members their children are graduated not a new process new york city has allowed non-citizens to volt from board of education and certainly have examples of other cities that is loud but really an expansion of the democracy individual that have so much at stake in the board of education when i ran i would have loved to campaign and reach out to so many parents not having a voice in the progress and this will certainly continue this work along with supervisor avalos charter amendment on expanding the multiple to vote 16 i hope we expand this in the longer-term but in a year we're staying betrayal against the immigrants at the analyzed level in the approximate disease by
4:20 pm
the republican nominee is important for san francisco to stand up and say say we support our immigrants and in participating in our democratic progress. >> thank you, supervisor kim supervisor campos. >> thank you. i just want to just provide some context that is important that has san francisco folks in the country are talking about limiting people's rights to vote we have seen the hurdles that people place on citizens to actually be able to cast ballot at the ballot box with the united states supreme court underlining the right to vote and donald trump and others singularly trying to keep certain polling people out of political process it is
4:21 pm
important that san francisco we're trying to expand the right to vote and the ability of people to be involved in the democratic process that is angle important thing that san francisco is doing noble not only with this measure by but the measure by supervisor avalos to vote 16 i'm proud to be part of that and proud that san francisco is doing this in light of the larger nationality political climate. >> thank you commissioner campos supervisor farrell. >> thank you supervisor president london breed you know, i release i'll be the minority on this today and unfortunately not something i will be able to support first of all, in terms of making sure that families are involved in their schools nothing i can and more with a parent of three children with parents in the school it critical to the success not only the families but the children
4:22 pm
and education i don't believe that voting on the school board is a simultaneous with being involved with the schools but more importantly it struck me this morning today is my mother's birthday and as i won't have the chance to go to breakfast with her and my dad's they talked about 20 years ago was the day she became a u.s. citizen and something we register they renowned our german citizenship it is who she is but the one thing she asked any children was the biggest difference and my children wouldn't respond and she said it is i can vote in the united states and so i appreciate this is a tough call but i'm in the vast minority but this is on
4:23 pm
personal experience he wonder will b a slippery slope school boards why not supervisors or anything else in the country that is part of a big discussion. >> thank you supervisor farrell madam clerk on item 5 o 24. >> call the roll. >> supervisor kim on item 24. >> supervisor mar supervisor peskin supervisor tang supervisor wiener supervisor yee supervisor avalos supervisor breed supervisor campos supervisor cowen supervisor farrell no. >> there are 10 i's and one no with supervisor farrell in the dissents. >> the charter amendment will be submitted madam clerk items 55 through 56. >> on july 19th little board of supervisors approved a motion

4:25 pm
of use of force another an election november 8, 2016. >> supervisor campos. >> madam president the city attorney's office is still working on language so technical language they're trying to you know finalize and make sure it is accurate i apologize and ask we come back but i know that supervisor cowen wants to speak to that. >> thank you supervisor cowen. >> thank you very much i will if we can't say do anything without the language so perhaps. >> would you like to explain exactly with you are proposing to change. >> sure. sure i'll defer to supervisor campos who articulated the changes. >> supervisor avalos thank you madam president this changes refer not only to items 55 and 56 the hearing on public advocate in the public advocate measure but also the item 57 the

charter amendment that supervisor cowen and supervisor president london breed have. >> hold on a second madam clerk call item 57. >> a second draft for the city and county of san francisco to rename the office of citizens complaints as the police accountability for the direct authority and require p a performance audit how the police department has handled the use of force on an election november 8, 2016. >> thank you and essentially what we are talking about doing would be to make amendments so the public advocate measure goes back to essentially one of the original versions that didn't actually include the office of
4:27 pm
police accountability essentially bringing back the public advocate to the times prior to the amendments that were introduced by supervisor avalos and that would also allow supervisor cowen and supervisor president london breed measure to go forward to the voters as a stand alone measure there are technical changes that have to be made in supervisor cowen's measure that take out what is called the poison pill as well as referencing what happens in the event if that the public advocate measure passes in terms of the possibility of the occ director and is public advocate measure essential will not deal with the amendments or changes that are promoted relatively to the department of police accountability equipment for the
4:28 pm
issue of appointment which would be the public advocate making the appointment subject to the approval the board the last thing i'll say this is just a technicality in the event i know we're actually working with tight deadlines so in the event that you know for some reason don't meet the deadlines there is a duplication forward to the tuesday board meeting but i don't know if this is possible the intent to go with this deal wear describing and again, it is so that voters have the opportunity to decide for themselves on the merits of each special. >> with that, supervisor cowen. >> thank you supervisor cowen. >> madam president a point of clarification will we able to take public comment on this 55 through 57 several people are coming and waiting is that a pocket autopsy yes, we can open

4:30 pm
insure we act in a responsible way that everyone in the city has a high-level of justice when it comes to the services that the law enforcement provide and residents deserve and have the right to know the police standards for use of force and office misconduct that that matches the communities values whether the system to hold off as accountable we system holds the officers accountable for their actions and to insure the system is working again, this will not happen in the board of supervisors and our city don't stand united and take a bold action today on solutions to real police reform what you've heard a willingness to bridge a gap i want to pubically acknowledge the colleagues that are helpful and the local agency formation commission has been reviewed by many, many people

5:00 pm
of citizens complaints because i witnessed an african-american woman being slammed against a wall but as police officers her legs kicked apart and filed a complaint i filed a complaint that was a labor representative from chicago i'll not see that because the secrecy the police officers are protected over and over i'm told this is why we can't do anything everyone need to advocate the police officer have no right to have their bill of rights that supercedes the people in this country and also the other thing we need to insure that the police officers do not see the videos before they make their reports that defeats the purpose thank you. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> good evening supervisors supervisor cowen we appreciate you bringing this forward and acting on it and showing
5:01 pm
advocacy about what happens to police reform my name is shawn the executive director of brothers against guns doing this 20 years born and raised in the western edition and born and raisedn san francisco i've seen a lot of violence police brutalities and a lot of non-compliance and accountability i thank god we have a new chief i don't know if you folks are aware of market street we had a chief that told his officers to stand do you think that's a step in the right direction and on the african-american commission board we are are changing policies so supervisor cowen for bringing this forward along with supervisor breed and you guys are moving and acting and taking. >> you know pro-active what is going on in our community in san

5:03 pm
accountability measure that is rear when we talk about police reform i fully support supervisor cowen because what you have a community driven police reform it is not politician driven or city hall not all those things that is the communities the people that you heard that we heard from today that testified that were walking the halls and so the communities has spoken so so i think that based on the conversation there is seems like consensus thanks to supervisor president london breed and others and the good folks to separate away to give the voters the chance to vote on police accountability and not part of a conversation about the public advocate it,too important to combine so whatever you want to use in terms of the verb what happened last week was unfair to the community and doing what you're doing will be happening a fully supporting the police
5:04 pm
accountability let's let the voters decide and respect the work and thank you very much for your leadership. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> hello, i'm not quite sure that looks like some amendments that will be done via the communities i'm not sure what is done only public hearing my direct question is dpa is direct authorities to manage the budget i've been part of globalization around the police accountability and wondering why there are some talk about how the community shouldn't go about figuring out what the budget needs to be worked on i don't understand this a good starting point but it is great it comes up in the bayview you still
5:05 pm
believe that is too late i believe that every two years ago for the police accountabilities go over and review it needs to be down and because it creates the divide within the community and the city hall and supervisors and police it is a step in the right direction but feel like it is too late and i feel like it is still needs we've got a lot more work to do and curious to see what community you reach out to getting the february from thank you. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> good afternoon and first of all, to supervisor president london breed and to supervisor cowen and this distinguished board of supervisors and am the wife after a retired police officer and stand here also a representative the san

5:10 pm
she produced legislation to prove she cared cared about life people have lost their lives in our city over something we can't explain with that being said and my time running short i encourage you keep the public advocate and the police accountability legislation separates don't incline them this creates a space for the police department to to transparent and build a relationship with the community this is a clear message that we really need to keep it separate and i ask you i implore you and ask not just the board of supervisors but ask this side of room as well as advertising for
5:11 pm
the city and county of san francisco you know how much this costs you know what that means so, please encourage them to keep is separate how much does it cost to bury someone in san francisco who went to a funeral who can anyone raise their hand thank you somebody cares skiing a piece of legislation that shows that. >> thank you anyone wish to comment public comment on this particular committee as a whole at this time? any members waiting in the overflow room room from department of human services at this time we'll close.
5:12 pm
>> this is in the hand of supervisors i recognize supervisor kim. >> thank you i just wanted to state again, some of my comments from last week, i do think we have two thoughtful measures moving forward to the ballot around the political reform one that provides more accountability and transparency at every level of government and second the department of police accountability and twhoil i was open to having them go forward to voters as one reform package all happy to support two different measures as long as they don't counter each other's mission they take care of and make sure they work alongside with each other he really want to recognize supervisor cowen and supervisor campos for working together to make sure
5:13 pm
that those reforms can move forward to the voter to allow them the choice without any type of confusion and also want to state again you know not having participated in the process as a department of police accountability i then as thoughtful piece of legislation i think that will provide more teeth to the former office of occ and allowing them to set their own budget and have staffing undertaking in relation to the number of police officers and see a greater level of others and transcript and a stronger relationship between the community and our police department because they're saying that government is really holding this department accountable and too i think the department we want to see in san francisco one that is strong in hits relationship with the community second with the office of public advocate this will also allow
5:14 pm
the public to have another means to by which there is accountability with a variety of different departments in san francisco and glad to see both measures move forward. >> thank you, supervisor kim. >> supervisor cowen. >> thank you madam president colleagues he wanted to take a moment to express some gratefulness to my staff it's been a stressful week for us i want to also uplift and acknowledge my staff who is really the been significant in creating this legislation getting it through a committee and talking about it to the larger public in a different coalitions and organizations to get the legislation for voter thank you for your leadership on that and want to acknowledge other are these in picking up the slack and also recognize the
5:15 pm
different folks that come out e came out from the community to speak that was nice to see the advocacy and if you will the seniors to young people out there advocating for what they are fighting for and again want to recognize the kind words that supervisor kim has given about this legislation as well as the supportive words that supervisor wiener has gone on record to acknowledge thank you for your support and supervisor campos any of you guys know this is a difficult relationship about it legislation that is a symptom of how passionate about our respected measures so thank you very much for hearing us and coming to the table and working together thank you. >> oh, i also want to thank supervisor president london breed that is my right or die through thick and thin thank
5:16 pm
you. >> no problem supervisor cowen supervisor campos. >> thank you madam president i wanted to say what actually commissioner cohen beat me to it sometimes poem feel xanax about something even if the tension is not - i'm happy the voters gives them an opportunity to make a choice to focus through the measure that supervisor cowen and supervisor president london breed introduced on police reform i actually think that it is its been a long time coming in terms of what needs to happen with the occ but with respect to the public advocate measure reform that goes beyond one individual agency that focuses across the board i know that it is been a ten times for the last few days and i too want to thank my staff and
5:17 pm
seep sheila who has kept this together a challenging procedural challenge because the complicated nature of how a charter works and the deadlines i really wrote be remiss if i didn't mention the city attorney's office they're done heavy lifting in terms of massaging and putting this together and complicated language and legal issues so when the time comes i'm ready to man and woman make amendments i can there are a lot of people that wanted to come and speak we're trying to fourth the timing of public comment so a lot of folks are coming anothers 5:30 we should precede i think there will be opportunity for
5:18 pm
folks to speak on this item we have a heavy calendar so my hope we can proceeded to to make amendments and so with that in mind, i have distributed a set of amendments that essentially do what we've described before which is takes out any reference to the proposal by supervisor cowen to make changes to occ and simply leaves the piece on the appointment and i think i have calculated i amended version to my colleagues so before i make a motion to amend i'd like to duplicate the file and send the duplicated version as a just in the case
5:19 pm
the timing didn't work to the tuesday meeting. >> august 2nd. >> i'm sorry august 2nd. >> so just to be clear you are going to duplicate the file before the amendment and send to next week's meeting. >> i was going to send the duplicate file by amend the file before us we want to take the amendment first. >> okay. let's - >> and supervisor campos just to be clear your amendment to have the public advocate is it t it passes appoint the director has the approval authority of the board of supervisors can you point out that which page number i want to make sure. >> absolutely. >> maybe the i know we have a new version. >> or maybe the city attorney can identify the location.
5:20 pm
>> sure john gibner, deputy city attorney. section 1.257 on page 21 of the docume , reflected amendment on the documents i have okay giving the public advocate appointment authority and then line - >> line 22 i apologize. >> on page 26 a new urban codified section 2 which says two things first that if the other charter amendment creating the police accountability passes in november than the amendments to section 417 will fall away and
5:21 pm
the occ related ordinances. >> so supervisor campos would like to make a motion to amend based on the amendments submitted. >> can i ask a question of the district attorney is it better to amend first and duplicate and then mainstream or duplicate. >> the key once you amend you have to hold the committee as a whole with the amendment it based on your. >> if for some reason we have tight timelines but to proceed with the original version so that's why i wanted to duplicate first and amend it.
5:22 pm
>> okay. and i don't know if it is appropriate for me to speak from here to get clarifying information okay so i think i guess my concern is we've come to a conclusion that we will work together so i'm concerned about what could possibly happen on tuesday if we allow the version of public advocate that is still has from changes to go forward on tuesday to be duplicated and continues on tuesday i guess i'm concerned about what we talked to do i mean as president i scheduled special meeting to address this. >> that's fine. >> the amendments are appropriate for public advocates
5:23 pm
and the department of police accountability i i want to put that out there supervisor campos. >> so we want to amend? >> make a motion and i think i need to- well, once we amend we'll figure out when with we send it the full board. >> supervisor campos made a motion to amend item 56 and seconded by supervisor mar without objection the amendment for item 56 passes and would you like to duplicate the file and continue it both to the original file to the thursday july 28th at 8 o'clock a.m. and continue the other duplicated files to a committee as a whole for tuesday.
5:24 pm
>> as amended would be a good option i think supervisor campos. >> i'm fine with that. >> supervisor cowen has a question and supervisor cowen. >> and my apologies if i'm slow on the uptake i don't understand the need for a duplicated foil what's the logic. >> supervisor campos. >> in the event we have like agree on the thursday meeting we have a act by 10 for some reason we don't act in time an opportunity for it to go on the ballots or ballot it's a precaution. >> madam clerk. >> question so if we don't have a quorum by thursday 10:00 a.m. what happens to our deadline. >> i'll not call the meeting
5:25 pm
to order until a quorum. >> that means the agendaized items what hemispheres. >> in order to meet the 24 deadline for the friday meeting the thursday special meeting at 840 should be over by 9:30 in the morning. >> so supervisor campos. >> look i'm fine with sitting with the acknowledged version that is just the lawyer in me trying to be extra caution i'm fine with the amended version to the committee as a whole and no duptdz files set. >> okay. >> thank you. >> supervisor avalos. >> thank you. i just wanted to thank supervisor cowen and supervisor campos for coming together and supervisor kim for also helping with this agreement i think those two
5:26 pm
measures compliment each other but actually, they don't have to be in the same version and keeping it alive to be able to negotiator the amendment i think was really good to side i voted against it at first but i thought in the week we call together and want to appreciate the colleagues for doing that. >> supervisor cowen. >> no further comments thank you. >> okay. if everybody shows up on thursday, we'll be all right. >> if i may madam president. >> supervisor campos. >> i've been told by the city attorney and the clerk to make sure i made the right words to committee as a whole. >> a may i repeat it should be continued to the july 28th special meeting at 840 as the committee as a whole.

5:37 pm
goals for housing and make that affordable for low income and moderate focus in and sufficient space for pdr to support a difference economy and provided good jobs pursue umu zoning promised us complete neighborhoods but at some point between the time the plans and environmental impact report was serviced and the plan was passed the planning department stripped a critical pdr requirement out of the umu zone we ended up with anything goes zoning remnants of a battle of the workday with these speculators give a free pass for profitable residential projects on cheap lands as a result the assuring has rrpdz 6 thousand pdrs feet infrastructure the umu zoning while a staircase over emphasis
5:38 pm
on the market-rate development when the planning commission certified this they approved the project that loud for 3 thousand plus rirlz and in the showcase square potrero area by but 3 thousand units plus are in the pipeline additional analysis done for the 2011, 2015 eastern neighborhoods monitoring report current in draft form is 4 thousand 5 hundred and 26 units well in excess of what was anticipated in the planned eir it is also worthy noting it indicates the eastern neighborhoods area is now on track to steady projections by nearly 2000 units the eastern neighborhoods plan
5:39 pm
promised us a full array for the complete neighborhoods including the open space and improved public transit and affordable housing unfortunately for us the city has not identified adequate funding or an actionable plan for the necessary infrastructure to mitigate the anticipation of the actual development this three hundred and 95 affordable housing will be one of the later in the potrero hill and the one that brings us over the top in residential units that displaces one and 9 thousand square feet of pdr space and all the jobs it provided the eir for the project mischaracterizes our neighborhood as trite rich while the statement of overriding considerations falsely claims the development is in quote
5:40 pm
close proximity to transit with the residents commute and satisfy the needs without a private automobile there is a good reason only 24 percent of neighbors commute well below the didn't average and the site of 501, 16th street building has one stop one a quarter of a mile where the rubs taking the traffic to montgomery to rush hour takes 3 minutes less than walking perhaps for the sprooirp that the sought and granted an exemption recognizing that having a car is a necessary i did for many in the area without that reliable transit it is no wonder traffic cip are a top concern the project eir
5:41 pm
identifies the intersection and another that will contribute to cumulative impact there are arguably no, but no feasible mitigations are being identified and finally the project is in conflict with a number area plans objectives with the protection of public vice it is a and replace the for the neighborhood character and at the odds in the underlined plan the vieira inadequate and fails to analyze the cumulative impacts and the specific impacts or accurately analysis alternatives i'd like to introduce rob who will speak about the sheriff's deputy and we believe that is a feasible each time that reduces the impacts the project in which we urge the board to support.
5:42 pm
>> good afternoon, supervisors rob with save the hill alison focused on the vieira insufficient the attorney advised the city the eir was submitted with a impacts was - i'd like to focus on what we building is a win-win adoption the so-called metal shed alternative this alternative was constituted if the environmental impact report and supported by the community it saves the project findings and has shown feasible and unsustainable reduces the impacts contrary to the developers and the eir assertion the metal was desired and saves the hill for the expanding in late 2014 the plan say is the result of extensive outreach over a period of several years
5:43 pm
with the consensus to use the building on the site including the metal clad one and rehabilitate them for more than uses the designs mixed uses and honoring the industrial pathways to providing a unique sense of belonging place and more importantly provides 50 square feet for artists and provides one and 77 units of housing including three bedrooms friendly units and sustainable s&p 500 this alternative surpasses the developers plan it offers a truly mixed use project awhile remaining a significant amount of distribution and the sponsors plans fails to mroosh the building heights don't rise up with the metal sheds to keeping with the area and general plan policies and anytimeize the shadows at the
5:44 pm
dwar daggett park. >> i6 the the eir manipulated the merits of metal shed use alternative and city planning burdened it with the components that yielded on unnecessarily high traffic count our subsequent analysis says the alternative is, in fact, feasible and in short the developers report relied on the market-rate rather than what the developer paid for the parcel in 2006 this scooted the profit numbers what they paid for in 2006, the metal shed penciled out to $40 million profit are 22 percent all of this is supported in greater detail in the materials as a
5:45 pm
reminder the project site has the last remaining rolling mill a company that began to operate 1868 before relocating at the end of the 19 century the facility was the largest fabric concern and up until mid 1937 provides steel for iconic believes that includes the fairmont hotel and race cathedral and the st. francis and the state capita and - the adaptation the metal shed alternative for it fulfills the showcase square and the area plans called for adapt and the pdrs protection and quality open space and mixed use and reduces
5:46 pm
the project go inadequacy to a large degree thank you. >> we'll open to public comment and it, it is on for any person that wants to speak in support of appeal those who want to speak against the appeal you'll have an opportunity at that particular time so if anyone is in support of appeal please come forward you'll have two minutes each. >> tom community involvement i think this is what we're all after right now
5:47 pm
they came out with supposedly looks like a very good plan i'm curious with the public advocate take this would they be involved with that commissioner peskin is saying no so it is request just a community against the planning department i'm thinking lien it to the communities to decide if they come up with a good plan not one that is genocide to be good or bad by the developers they want more bucks thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> good afternoon, supervisors and friends i'm phillip i'm a registered architect that lived on coastline for 35 years the proposed project on 16th street between 16th street and
5:48 pm
17th street is a very problematic one for many points of view it is the largest project ever proposed on potrero hill and the densest ever it will o blast a historic complex of industrial buildings from the 20th century and proposed as a location with constant traffic and incite hour crush that slows to a crawl 5 days a week this site is several blocks if the usf hospital and a freeway ramp it is approved i think explainly to me this is a wrong move it is clear to most everyone on potrero hill the finding the current eir suggest that the development as
5:49 pm
proposed will lead to unavoidableable impacts to transportation and circulation in mississippi strata stand still of traffic i'm shocked the internal revenue was based on data collect in 2012 and not reevaluated in 2017 for the current eir this is an insuitable error i'll suggest be corrected immediately thank you. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> hello supervisors i'm peter's i've lived on potrero hill for 419 years i direct the potrero hill archive and covered two books
5:50 pm
asking for a new eir on the project the current eir is on ousted and skewed information the proposed development is much too large for the neighborhoods and on top of that will destroy one of the last industrial buildings which tell the story the neighborhoods emergence as as stricken out center in the early 20th century a new eir is absolutely necessary thank you very much. >> thank you, thank you very much. >> next speaker, please. >> hello, everyone my name is yvonne and i'll i was born on castro hill on 1942 when we were kids we took our bikes and my brothers would take the go-carts down to where this building was and the workers
5:51 pm
that were there always helped us fix our bikes we were able to pick up in a nut shell i was not sure i i was young it was important to have that this that is a going backer building and i would say in other plays i came back to san francisco because i really likes the architecture and just the neighborhoods and what's appalling that eir is so ousted it needs to be reanalyzed and in a more thoughtful way the planning commission in the old days when sue bierman was on the commission she concerned showed and parks for children and really wanted to make sure there were not shadows covering where people walked and lived and this project is so
5:52 pm
huge that is amazes me is gotten this far all i can say right now the traffic is so bad in order for me to get to work i go over the hill to 25 street over to the hospital and on my way it is part of the way because of the new hospital and all the other buildings - i'm saddened this is what happened to our city like a bunch of illegal buildings in a row without much open space i encourage you to look at it this once more. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> i'm rick hall a resident of coast line and here to support the appeal i would love to speak to the eastern neighborhoods plan eir and the eastern neighborhoods plan policy because i am having to live with
5:53 pm
